Hep C Virus Living On Inanimate Objects
« on: December 14, 2014, 12:55:21 pm »
Hello Lucinda,

I have a question concerning the virus and it's ability to live outside the body. I have read on this site and on others comments made about the virus being able to survive up to 6 weeks outside of the body.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC.gov), the hepatitis c virus can only live up to 4 days.

I'm hoping you can clear this up for me as I am writing a book about my journey to wellness and want my readers to have the correct information.

Blessings,
Pam
